In 1789 he first started pondering about unitary architecture[?]. In 1791 he moved from his native Besancon to Lyons, the second largest city in France. Here the Francois-Joseph l'Ange[?] was active, developing ideas for a nationalised company to buy and distribute corn through a network of centuries. Followinga royalist insurrection Fourier was arrested but avoided execution by lying.
